MORE 2012November, 14-16 2012
Meeting on Optical Response in Extended Systems
MORE 2012 follows the spirit of the highly successful Low
Energy Spectrometry Symposiums (LESS 2007 and 2009) as well as MORE
2008 and 2010.
Optical absorption spectroscopy, resonant inelastic X-ray
reflection EELS, ellipsometry, and reflectance difference
are just a few of a large variety of experimental probes to explore
the optical and higher-energy response of materials, including elemental
solids, compounds, molecules on surfaces or complex nanostructures.
On the theoretical side many body perturbation theory (MBPT) and
time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT) represent
state-of-the-art developments to describe excitation processes in
Both theory and experiment being complementary, ideally should go
in hand to promote development and leading edge research.
Main intention of MORE 2012 is bringing together experimentalists and theoreticians of these different fields and to form a platform for leading experts to discuss and exchange their recent results and scientific concepts. To ensure lively and fruitful discussions and a personal atmosphere, we limit the number of participants including speakers to 60. Contributions in the form of posters are readily welcome.
The AMICI Young Scientist Support Fund (A.Y.S.S.) offers five grants of EUR 550,-- to support young scientists. Selected applicants will get the opportunity to present the results of their work as a contributed talk (30 minutes including discussions). Young scientists are invited to apply for these grants until October 1st by sending their CV, a short motivation letter, and an abstract for their presentation to firstname.lastname@example.org.
